"No matter what they say, sixty will never be the new forty. But sixty-five-year-old author Virginia Ironside is determined to convince people that getting old is really not so bad--even for a Baby Boomer who interviewed the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix early in her career. Here, Virginia Ironside explores the many unsung benefits of aging. There are ailments, but there are also fabulous meds. There are grandchildren--your reward for not killing your own children. And then there's 'wisdom, ' that random accumulated knowledge you can label as such just because you're old. You're Old, I'm Old ... Get Used to It! celebrates scattered memory, frequent naps, and mercifully lowered expectations"--Page 4 of cover

Marie may be 'getting on a bit' but it's certainly not getting her down. She's working part time so there are more hours each day to enjoy life. She has her friends. She has Pouncer, the cat, as well as a darling grandson. And she has Archie to share her bed. All this, plus the Daily Rant's screaming headlines to wake her up in the morning. Life's good. But nothing stays the same for long. A roller coaster of a year beckons, a year that contains love and death, laughter and tears and the bizarre decision to take up temporary residence in a tree. Always funny, often touching, No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses shows that getting on a bit does not mean giving up or even growing up

In her own inimitable style, she's getting older ... and loving every minute of it

No thanks! I'm quite happy standing! by Virginia Ironside( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More uproarious tales of growing old disgracefully from beloved agony aunt Virginia Ironside. Marie is turning 69 this year, but there are no signs of her slowing down - she has a new lodger (very into conspiracy theories), an intractable iPhone to wrestle with, and a trip to India to plan! As usual the year brings plenty of challenges as well as opportunities. Marie is burgled, which sends the street into uproar. Ex-husband David is still around and getting rather too close for comfort. Marie's cat Pouncer is starting to look rather peaky (her conspiracy-theorist lodger is convinced someone is poisoning him), and probably worst of all, it seems Gene is getting too old to want to hang out with his groovy granny any more. Maybe learning to paint graffiti and speak street slang will help win him back? Full of Virginia Ironside's inimitable wit and featuring plenty of popular characters from this series, this is a hilarious and touching look at getting older from one of Britain's sharpest observers of relationships
